Blood Drive 2022

Consider donating blood at our annual Red Cross Blood Drive! In honor of Marie Joyner celebrating another year being cancer-free, Our Companions holds a blood drive to give back to those needing this crucial life source, like Marie needing blood transfusions during her recovery. This year our blood drive will be held on Thursday, August 25th from 9AM-5PM. The event is held at our Valerie Friedman Program Center at 34 Sanrico Dr., Manchester, CT 06042.

Something new we’re adding this year- everyone who attends the blood drive will be entered in a drawing to win a $250 gift card for gas at Cumberland Farms! Depending on the vehicle you drive, that’s about 5 or 6 free fill ups! We will give each donor who shows up a raffle ticket and at the end of the blood drive, we will pick a lucky winner and email them the gift card. So what are you waiting for- sign up today!
